Discover the 60 Projects Selected as part of the 2022 Paris Peace Forum

2022 Selected Projects Announced

At its annual event and throughout the year, the Paris Peace Forum showcases and accelerates governance projects or initiatives that propose specific solutions to global challenges. Each year, the Forum provides these projects with customized support by connecting project leaders with decision-makers, practitioners, and funders.

Since 2018, over 400 projects have been featured, of which ten annually receive one year of customized support via the Forum’s Scale-up program. These projects have achieved significant results and are characterized by their international and multi-stakeholder dimension and the ability to bring about lasting change within global governance.

This year, the Space for Solutions will showcase 60 projects and initiatives tackling issues at the heart of the fifth edition.All of them will enjoy a dedicated space within the event venue, and a chance to take the floor to speak about their work and/or share their views on the issue in global governance that they are addressing.
